I enter this in my ~/.Xdefaults file:
Code:

xterm*foreground: white
xterm*background: black
xterm*font: 9x15

You can find examples and resources here:

Thank you for your prompt response. But I am running rxvt, is it the same ?

Thank you !

According to this http://www.linuxcommand.org/man_pages/rxvt1.html it looks like it's very similar to xterm. Try the settings and see if they work. Trial and error, that's how you also learn.
